Lester Marshall Perera

After a long break, here’s the next instalment of our “Who’s who at the Bonnington” series. This time, we would like you to meet Lester, our Security Manager.

Lester hails from Sri Lanka, where his first job was Doorman at the prestigious Hotel Lanka Oberoi and where he fell in love with the hotel industry and luxury hotels.

He stayed with the Oberoi for six years, moving through the ranks to Security Supervisor, before joining Le Meridien Sri Lanka for three years.

In 1987, Lester emigrated to Canada, where he worked as a Concierge in a luxury apartment building for one year before, having gathered enough local knowledge, joining the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. Working in what could well be described as the most iconic hotel in the Four Seasons collection, Lester served countless Royals, Presidents, and celebrities for six long years.

Eventually, Sri Lanka lured him back and he moved to the Bentota Beach, a beautiful beach property just outside Colombo, where he worked as Security Manager for three years.

After that, he joined another beach property, the Mount Lavinia Hotel, where, as a Security Manager, he oversaw security, transportation, and the pool.

Destiny brought Lester to Dubai where he first worked for the Al Bustan Centre before joining the Bonnington in 2009.

Lester says that he does not settle for anything less than top performance and output and calls himself a perfectionist with 34 years experience of managing effective & modern security operations.
